Wire Rope Induction Heating Case Study

3rd August 2020

Steel ropes are through-heated to allow the impregnation of coatings. The rope is continuously fed through an induction coil to heat the rope up to a maximum temperature of 180°C prior to the impregnation process. Given the control of the input parameters from the Inductelec rope heating machine a repeatable, consistent output temperature is achieved on rope diameters from 15mm to 120mm.
